Pure is entering the Alexa era with a new smart speaker complete with Apple’s Airplay 2 technology.
DiscovR is available to order online from Amazon this October priced at £229.99 in two colours, Silver and Graphite, complete with 15 hour battery life or mains power.
Unlike most Alexa devices, DiscovR comes with quick corners. You can pre-set any voice command, station or playlist to be accessed instantly without the need to use your voice. There’s a button to mute the microphone, touch controls for volume and track skipping and source selection is shown by its corresponding colour.
And at the touch of a button you can identify and add any song you hear on the radio to your Spotify music service playlist for listening back later.
In addition, DiscovR offers a design that when closed, it physically disconnects the microphones should you have any privacy issues with Alexa listening to your private conversations.
